Oh, this is going to be a ride.

I have mixed feelings on this game. I loved what it *tried* to do, and I do enjoy it overall, but there are parts I wish were better explained, more fleshed out, or, in one, very, very, VERY, specific case, wished was nuked from orbit.

If I recall correctly, the kid's "Classes" (Hero/Sage/Priest/Fighter/Mage) is a reference to one of the Dragon Quest games. I think. Correct me if I'm wrong.

A part of me wonders if that book is a reference to the M. Night Shyamalan movie Split, which also features a man with 24 split personalities.

There's a minor reference that I think I can mention: In the world of anime, there's another Masaru Daimon-the protagonist of Digimon Savers (or Data Squad for the US), and his name in Japanese is written with the EXACT SAME KANJI as our Masaru.

"Crazy Diamond" is a Jojo's Bizarre Adventure reference (well, technically it's a Pink Floyd reference.).

You know, whenever Junko talks in DR1 or 2, her dialogue always felt more... how do I say...

...stream of conscious? Something like that. Do you know what I mean?

I made an educated guess as to what that small flashback of Kotoko's meant, and when it 'clicked' for me, I genuinely had to go lay down for a moment from nausea and disgust.

I was more focused on the content itself rather than how it was implemented when I was playing through, so my reactions to most of this stuff was just variations on "That is awful" and *dry heaving*.

But, yeah, this is... kind of not good.

Masaru: Your classic booze-drinking cigarette-smoking rear end in a top hat Dad abuse

Jataro: Gaslighting of some sort, making himself think he's ugly and useless and stupid

Kotoko: Used in child pornography

Nagisa: Treated like a living experiment

Monika: Literally had her legs broken by her dad and older brother

I like Junko, or at least, I like how absolutely random she can be, what with her constant references and shout-outs and her different poses.

Huh, I always saw Haiji's comment in more of a "I want a girl who literally just turned 18 today" way, which is still kind of bad, but not as bad as... well, what you see it as.

If it isn't obvious at this point, all of the Warriors of Hope's robots are named after movies.

Something I'm curious about-Is Monaca, in the JP version, written in kanji or katakana? Because it's weird for someone to give an elder brother an actual Japanese name and his little sister an English one.

At this point, I fully expect Danganronpa 3's big plot twist to be that literally everybody, including the protagonist, is secretly Junko.

I don't really have much to say about the anime, but I will supply some extra information about the OPs and EDs:

The Side: Future OP is named "Dead or Lie" by Maon Kurosaki feat. TRUSTRICK.

Side: Despair's OP is named 「カミイロアワセ」 (kamiroawase) by binaria.

I thought this was known from the first game. Like it's made clear from game 1 that she is just completely insane.

Yeah, but she's insane in a funny way.

Until she's not.

But even then, she still kind of is.

You know, I can't believe I just realized that on top of all this, Kodaka is also a Nivana fan. All the little things made sense: Chapter 4 of DR1 (All All Apologies in the LP translation, All Star Apologies in the official translation), basically everything about Sonia (Last name, Nevermind, is the album that got Nirvana big, her country is Novoselic, which is the surname of Nirvana's drummer, and she attended 'In Utero High' back before the events here, which is another Nirvana album).

Overly Sarcastic Productions has a good episode on Mind Control as a trope.
